Taper time! Well, taper time mileage-wise that is. I still have 22 miles to bang out on Saturday (the final dress rehearsal) and I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t a wee bit nervous.
The Boston welcome package came in the mail this weekend and confirmed what I already knew: I’m representin’ the rear of Wave 2!
I can’t be surprised. Remember, I just made the cut-off for Boston.
I’m just so happy to be in Wave 2
Boston Week 12 Recap
MON: 7 easy – my legs were so tired at the beginning of the week. I kept Monday and Tuesday’s runs easy.
TUE: 8 easy
WED: 11 tempo with 9 at MP – during this run I realized that this was my 5th consecutive day of running, or 52 miles. No wonder I felt like crap.
FRI: 4 easy
SAT: 15 hilly miles (8:32 average pace)
SUN: 5 easy – up bright and early at 6AM to get this in!
So my peak week that wasn’t turned out pretty good! 50 miles total, which I was happy about considering how tired my legs were in the beginning of the week.
Less than 3 weeks to go…
